I see that after the hardfork, my powerdown was set for the year 1969, I had to manually change it again to start a new power down period.
Is this a bug?, if it is, has anyone reported it yet?
Thanks for your help in advance.
UPDATE: It seems this happens after getting 13 power-downs, still the 1969 year is kind of consfusing.
Time is right for an update about PEvO!
Since a couple of weeks, @shak is building up networks in the scientific community as well as the bigger blockchain space. His own introduction will follow soon, don't miss it!
This has lead to a couple of impressive names signaling interest, it's not far enough to disclose them yet though. Except one.
Today, we finally had our first Skype call with the author of the metastudy cited extensively in our whitepaper, Nikolaus Kriegeskorte. He loves our ideas and in the end he agreed to be an official advisor of the PEvO project!
He stated, like others before, that the main problem will be convincing researchers to switch to our platform. They are used to what they already use, and as bad as the current process is, everyone has found their ways to deal with it.
The superior technology is not enough of a reason by itself. But the Impact Points system is
If you do not know what a witness is, read this post by @someguy123:
Hard Fork 19 is behind us and with it came some problems. Some witnesses had their servers running on 8GB space and with all the new traffic that was not enough so blocks got missed… So I set out to provide a powerful backup witness to ensure that this won't happen again!
My witness node is running on @privex hardware and has a whoppin 24GB of RAM available to the blockchain with enough to spare to increase it even further.
I want to thank @thecryptodrive and @officialfuzzy for trusting in me! https://steemdb.com/@reggaemuffin/witness

Each week I do a short write up outlining what I've been up to in the past week in regards to my witness campaign, service development and general update on things. This week was primarily focused on the @tippy project and my effort to try and get the service online for the end of this month. I still have a fair amount to do on the project, still aiming for the end of the month launch but that doesn't leave me much time!
Also the HF19 event earlier this week was a great success and for the most part people seem to enjoy the new changes it sounds like! HF20 development seems to be also moving ahead in the Steemit Inc hive. Will get more details on that as they arise.
Just a short post for all of the witnesses panicking right now.
IF YOUR WITNESS HAS NOT CRASHED, BUT YOU'RE STILL MISSING BLOCKS, IT'S NORMAL. Check out the witness-blocks channel on steemit.chat and you'll see tons of witnesses are now missing blocks. Seems HF19 is not a smooth upgrade. No known fix, but seems to be improving over time (possibly just a hiccup near launch time).
If you got something like this in your logs, and now your witness is dead:
terminate called after throwing an instance of 'boost::interprocess::bad_alloc' what(): boost::interprocess::bad_alloc Aborted (core dumped)
You need to increase your shared memory file to 10GB instead of 8GB.
shared-file-size = 10G
Remember to make sure you have enough RAM for this!
Don't forget to increase your /dev/shm
If using steem-in-a-box
./run.sh shm_size 10G

Note that this has changed now. In theory, there is nothhing stopping anyone forking Steem and starting a new Steem blockchain. Just like that.
Well, this is what Dan is now up to, and he's about where Steem was around february or so last year:
Of course Tone Vays has weighed in with his expert skepticism about it - he says that both Bitshares and Steem were really just ways for a small clique to get rich... and it is my view that the outcome of Larimer's design, not the central parts but more peripheral parts indeed did this - the old rewards curve before HF19 did make t

We're now in the final 3 hours before the Steem network upgrades to
Equality v0.19.0 .
I can feel the tension and uncertainty in the air !
This week I've gained over 100 new voters, some with decent SP holding but not quite enough to advance another rank yet.

Hello Steemit 👋 😁 🖖 It's been a great journey here so far for the @personz, and now I'm throwing my hat into the ring as witness.
I'm using a different account for it - @personzzz - so be aware if you are so kind as to vote for me 😜
As a coder and tinker-er, I've always been drawn to doing projects for the sake of themselves, for the simple enjoyment of doing them. I began my investigation into becoming a witness in the same light.
The witness community are like all great online communities - somewhat friendly, somewhat frosty, often terse but helpful, short of calling Doctor Google for you 😉 With their help I looked into it, played around with some server set ups, both at home and on cloud computing services.
I want to contribute for the sake of doing it. I'm interested in the rewards too, but as @gtg is fond of saying these days on steemit.chat, "Blogging
My fellow Steemians,
Welcome to my witness update. This is something I do as some other witnesses do too. Hopefully, this will keep my followers and the community up-to-date with what I've been up to. Ultimately, I hope I may gain your witness approval vote.
Upgraded all nodes to the latest 0.19.0 HF. The transition went well as all witnesses updated and the network switched over. The linear rewards curve was among the features and allowed everyone to have a proportional say with their stake. The proposal for the next release has already been published and will allow the network to scale globally.
I've reached 1000 followers! It's passed 1150 now since that post, which is incredible! I have been a Steemian for almost a year now and glad to have experienced this journey.

About a week has gone by as being a witness and so far everything has been running smoothly. My servers are stable and everything has been working as it should. I missed my very first block due to mixing up the keys for my two nodes, a classic bummer and lesson learned of it 😎
So far I've been witnessing about 12 blocks per day, much thanks to some really big support from all of you in the community of Steemit! A big thanks to everyone voting for me, trusting me with this task. 😍
I've managed to write some good quality content on Steemit during the week, including
I have fully migrated my main witness node to a full dedicated server! (Explanation Later)
For now lets see the specs, since they changed from my latest update post:
This is obviously a major upgrade for firecrab-witness in case you missed my original proposal and upgrades (<a href="https://steemit.com/peerplays-witness/@tyler-fletcher/peerplays-witness-firecrab-witness-
As always please consider voting for the witnesses I have listed above!
I'm so very thankful to currently be in position 33!
Just 20 days ago, I was at position 77. If you want to know more about what witnesses do check out this post:

My last update is available here:
When I joined Steemit, 9 months ago, I was a bit reluctant, to be honest. It looked too good to be true, so I really wanted to try it out and to get to the bottom of it, before jumping to conclusions. So I decided the best way to understand its ins and outs was a 30 days writing challenge, in which I commited to write one article per day. Now it's fun to look back and see all the steps I took and how this journey unfolded.
As I see many new writers joining Steemit, under much better conditions than I experienced, I thought it would be nice to start a new 30 days challenge to support them. And, truth to be told, also for having a consistent material to analyze the medium and long term impact of Hardfork 19. Now that the rewards are spread over a 7 days window, the changes are a bit more inertial, there is significantly more time needed until a change in the model gets fully implemented.
Welcome to my witness update. Every witness publish a regular report on his activity and I have to admit I have been “a bit lazy” to write about my witness work. I'm not the best to brag about myself and my work. It's time to do something about it.Previous posts
Of course, I run several Witness and Seed nodes, which were updated from hardfork to hardfork.
I have missed a few blocks before hardfork 17 and decided to move my nodes to a new datacenter with new hardware and a better network. This put an end to the problem of missing blocks. Me happy!
Last day, I upgraded my nodes for the hardfork 19. I also added a new full seed node that will be dedicated to my
As more witnesses are following the trend of increasing their price feed bias, I decided to lower mine from 80% down to 65%. The measure of having such a high bias is related to the abnormally high price of SBD - basically, the peg is broken and that puts pressure on other parts of the system. The goal is to have SBD trading again at
1 dollar worth of STEEM as it was initially designed.
Following the increase in transactions, I also decided to increase the size of the block from 65,536 to 131,072.

https://steemit.com/~witnesses is the page you need to go to to do this.
In the clip, I show you how you vote for me. The only tricky part, is that you have to spell my username correctly. It is the letter L, the number zero (0), k, and then one (1). l0k1. It's easiest to just select my username and copy it, if you are unsure, and paste it into the spot where I show you how to type it in the screen video capture.
Thanks in advance to anyone who votes for me.
I got pretty upset with Steemit, Inc, a couple of months ago, and felt like, most importantly, that the people developing this platform were unsympathetic to the plight of the newbies and poor people here - and of course this is a terrible thing for adoption, which meant, in my mind, that this thing was going nowhere.
